I didn't say for pie and mash.    I said for a pie and mash.
This will definately confuse bgp.🤔

Stewie, Richard and Dave.   You are all just jealous, because I can ride all day without stopping for a pie and mash.    :2:

Geoff,

Having re-read your comment, I ask again - why wouldn't you stop for a pie and mash? That would be a good reason for going for a ride. Do you not like pie and mash? Has a pie and mash upset you?
If perhaps you mean you can ride all day  to go for a pie and mash, without having to stop on route for a pee, then I understand you and admit to jealousy.
I plan my trips around my knowledge of local public conveniences, and especially following covid lockdown, ones that I know were kept open or had re-opened for use.

The new helmet is the Caberg Duke 2 flip up (in white which was needed for Blood Bikers).  My older helmet is an O'Neil Sierra 2 adventure helmet.  And quite a bit bigger, and sits lower at the neck level.  Even my old track day helmet (for the car) which was just a cheap leopard helmet is quieter than the caberg.

I think currently I'm looking to bike changes (mirrors, screen) to get the best here, before then looking into the expense of another helmet.  The New one is only 5 months old.

I've also got a duke 2, as has my son. When I saw him a few weeks ago he said that he'd bought a Caberg Horus and it was quieter than the duke. Next time I go for a ride with him I'll see if I can try his (we wear the same size lid) and form an opinion about the noise level.

No Dave, pie and mash does not upset me. I love pie and mash, and yes, I also love having a pie and mash.  Unfortunately these days I  don't get to enjoy having a pie and mash, which is rather upsetting. 

However, my catheter now looks after my water drainage system, but whilst it is doing a good job, it is not like enjoying a good old pie and mash.  There are benefits though.

I can now  drain my system pretty much anywhere,  so finding a public convenience is not essential .    But hey, we are blokes, we can all have a pie and mash pretty much anywhere.  All that is needed is a bit of discretion.  :028:

Bit late for this one.
Not perplexed at all. Figuring out pie and mash was piece of cake.

Please BGP,
Pie and mash is not a piece of cake, Pie and Mash is a good savoury dish which is terribly yummy, whereas cake is sweet. I would ride 100 miles for a good pie and mash, but not necessarily for a piece of cake, unless very exceptional.  Must get this difference right!
